Aging, gravity, childbirth, hormonal changes, and other life events can have physical implications for the body that are often unanticipated and unspoken. In particular, changes to the labia, such as sagging, asymmetry, or enlargement, can be particularly embarrassing, especially if these changes cause physical problems such as a pulling, pinching, or other uncomfortable sensation during physical activity or sexual intercourse or restrict clothing choices like bathing suits, tight jeans, or leggings.
Labiaplasty (also known as vaginal lip reduction, labia rejuvenation, or labia reduction) is an innovative procedure designed to surgically correct unevenness or elongation of the labia minora (inner lips of the vulva) and/or labia majora (outer lips of the vulva). This quick outpatient procedure can reshape and re-sculpt the lips of the vulva for thinner, smaller, more aesthetically pleasing labia, as well as eliminate discomfort and embarrassing physical complications. Perhaps most importantly, when performed by a skilled surgeon using advanced surgical techniques, labiaplasty can actually increase sexual sensitivity by enabling greater access to the clitoris.

Dr. Bryon Richards and his caring, skilled staff have worked hard to create a professional, welcoming environment where you can feel absolutely comfortable discussing personal details about your medical and aesthetic concerns, including your changing labia. Moreover, as a highly experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Richards has the technical skill, detailed anatomical knowledge, and commitment to excellence necessary to ensure that this intricately detailed procedure in a delicate and sensitive area is performed as safely, comfortably, and successfully as possible.
Your Labiaplasty Procedure and Recovery
Given the highly sensitive location of the surgery, many patients express concern about the potential discomfort that they assume a labiaplasty must involve. In fact, labia reduction surgery can be carried out under light anesthesia, and usually causes very little discomfort. A relatively quick procedure, most labia reduction surgeries take between 1-2 hours to complete. During the procedure, Dr. Richards will remove excess tissue and/or re-sculpt the existing tissue through a series of very small incisions. The incisions are then closed with dissolvable sutures. Patients usually require 3-4 days of recovery time before resuming work and most normal activities; sexual intercourse can resume within 3-4 weeks.
